Ship Handling


The content of the present guide bases on the version of the PC Maritime NavMaster electronic chart display information system and continues the series of the guide training modules. The previous releases addressed the ECDIS developed by the world known manufacturers, including JRC JAN-701B-901B-2000, Kongsberg K-Bridge, eGlobe G2, Furuno FMD 3X00 and FEA 2X07, Kelvin Hughes MantaDigital, Maris ECDIS 900 and OSI ECPINS.

The material arrangement remained same as it was in the other sets. The booklet accompanying the video training files contains the information covering all important aspects of the use and maintenance of the subject systems. The set will be great when used both onboard any ship with the PC Maritime NavMaster system installed and when used for training purposes by the people willing to get themselves duly familiarized with the arrangement and operating principles of the ECDIS or get better and deeper understanding of this particular one.

All explanations and instructions provided in the booklet and in the videos are very clear and easy to follow so it can be used by both professional navigators and students who will all appreciate the structure of the set.

An excellent video produced by Hempel - one of the world leader in the field of coating and paint production. The widest range of coatings produced by the company feature easy application and cost effectiveness. This training video was prepared in order to provide ship crew members with required instruction on proper handling of the coating process.

The instructor will guide them through all factors that normally influence the lifetime of the shipboard protective coating systems intended to prevent the hull from corrosion. The good condition of the coating will ensure it effective work and eventually contribute in the overall effectiveness of ship operation. Noting that the time the crew may spend for the maintenance in port is continuously reduced due to the growing intensiveness of activities, it is becoming more and more important to increase their quality.

Any coating system will start deteriorating sooner or later and that is why a good maintenance system shall be established on board every ship. The crew members shall not only understand the importance of the proper and timely maintenance but also have a good knowledge of what, how and when shall be done to keep the vessel duly maintained.

Unlike the other parts, however, this training set does not include pdf files and the compilers preferred to use the video format of presenting the materials. There are ten video lessons making the set and they cover the finding permit number, deleting ENC data and permits, and installing ENC permits, AIO permits and media, AVCS base CD, update CD and DVD media, plus installing the public key for the S-63 1.1.

This set of materials continues the series commenced by numerous training videos dealing with the Furuno FEA 2X07 and FMD 300, Kongsberg K-Bridge, Kelvin Hughes MantaDigital, eGlobe G2 and JRC JAN-701B-901B-2000 systems. The set traditionally consists of two documents accompanied with several videos.

The documents included in the set provide necessary information about migrating to the IHO certificate for the S-63 1.1 in this system and give the instructions on using the AVCS, standing for the Admiralty Vector Chart Service, with the subject ECDIS.

As it was the case with all previous releases of the video guidance sets, this one is also intended to provide users with the equipment-specific technical information that will assist them in managing the equipment and software.

The main purpose of the present guide accompanied with the video lessons is to provide the end-users of the ECDIS system developed and presented by eGlobe with the valuable equipment-specific technical information which will definitely help them to manage the AVCS ENC. The guide will be best when used together with the operators manual or any other document provided by the manufacturer of the equipment.

Traditionally, the user guide is made of several chapters each dealing with some particular aspect of using the ECDIS, and there is a good video lesson supplementing the content of each chapter and giving some visual aid for better understanding. The eGlobe G2 system would normally work with different hardware combinations, for example a touchscreen or non-touchscreen. The present guide is primarily aimed at the eGlobe G2 version featuring touchscreen option. It should be noted that a dongle with the license key is not required in this system unlike many other systems.

The training videos will provide you with the step-by-step instructions making it easy to use the system. In addition to the coverage of the installation matters, two closing chapters of the guidebook are dealing with the system checks and troubleshooting. These two will be particularly useful to the persons engaged in the day to day operation of the system and maintaining it in a good working order at all times.
